You’ve read the interview with creator Tyler Crook, and while Lonesome Hunters #1 isn’t out till June, we have a first look at the cover of issue #2. The Lonesome Hunters is described as a “supernatural fantasy about loss, power, and destiny,” and follows a washed-up monster hunter as he teams up with a young girl for a “supernatural road trip to stop…ancient evils.”
This is a rare comics experience as Crook not only writes and draws but also letters the entire series. As Crook told us, “It is a whole different experience from just doing the art for a book. I have written a little bit before. For example, I wrote about half of the backup stories for Harrow County. But writing a whole series like The Lonesome Hunters is something totally different. I think the thing I was happiest to learn about myself is that I could do it. And I think I can do it pretty ok, too!”
Check out the solicit and cover below!
Summary: After fleeing their tenement during a monster magpie attack, Lupe finds herself a pupil to an aged monster hunter and on the run from ancient evils determined to take them down and retrieve the relic they protect.
